About The Literary Gift Company

The Literary Gift Company was founded in 2009 by Dani Hall, and is based in Reading (where else?) A former bookseller and bookshop manager, Dani was just completing an MA in Children's literature when she spotted a gap in the market for great quality bookish gifts and launched the company in her spare time. Ten years later and it’s become much more than a full-time job for Dani, (and definitely doesn’t fit in her house anymore!), so 8 years ago we moved into Literary HQ in the centre of Reading. At Literary HQ our dedicated team help support our lovely customers, keep our website up to date and spend time seeking out inspiring new product ideas

Our range of products

We offer a hand-picked selection of gifts for bibilophiles, including clothing, jewellery, homeware, reading accessories, games, stationery and much much more. With over a thousand literary products to choose from, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect gift (and maybe even something for yourself as well…)

Our in-house team are always creating new products to add to our constantly-expanding collection of exclusive products – from Literary Maps and Jane Austen doormats to Handmaids Tale babygros – we dream them up, put them into production and sell them through our website and in partnership with a range of wonderful indie bookshops throughout the country.

Our philosophy

A one-stop-shop for book lovers everywhere, we produce our own ever-growing range of literary products, as well as sourcing a unique combination of gorgeous products from new designers, alongside the best of quality brands from our partners. We especially love promoting products which recycle or upcycle abandoned or unloved books.

Designers and Suppliers

We are always on the lookout for new products and new collaborations - if you’re an artist or designer with an original bookish product idea, then please do contact us. We’d love to hear from you.

Our Family

In 2012 we launched our sister site Present Indicative: The Intellligent Gift Company - our Nonfiction department. In 2019 we changed the company name to Academically Gifted Ltd, but it is still us. The Literary Gift Company and Present Indicative are both trading names of Academically Gifted Ltd.
